About Gill & Philip

Gill and Phil live in Somerset. They love the countryside, visiting Bath, holidays, music, singing and generally enjoying life.

Gill & Philip purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Gill & Philip chose Holcombe

Gill was born just west of the Mendip Hills and has always loved the area. Both Phil and Gill love Bath and Holcombe is perfect for visiting both. The cottage itself is cosy and feels like a real home from home. We knew we wanted to buy it the second we stepped over the threshold and we are so pleased that we did.

A nice comfrotable cottage, with every thing we needed.

  • 5 of 5

It was a comfortable cottage, nice and well presented, the welcome pack was most appreciated as the nearest shop is not walkable. Parking could be difficult especially at week ends. Otherwise a great stay.

Perfect cottage great location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. The cottage had everything we needed. We visted wookey hole, longleat safari and bristol aquarium. All a short drive and so enjoyable. Our son loved it all. A perfect little family getta away and you don't spend hours in the car. The local pub was lovely "duke of Cumberland" really lovely food. Thank you for the care and service you provide with your lovely cottage. We will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

An amazing, beautiful cottage!! Definitely would recommend to all

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and the owners had thought of everything, including a welcome hamper. We visited with two dogs and there was plenty of room- would encourage everyone to stay there!!

Owner's Response: Dear Hannah, Thank you so much for your glowing review. We only have one regret, and that is that we don't get there often enough ourselves. We think it is beautiful too, and just love Holcombe and the surrounding area, but it is so lovely to hear that you enjoyed yourselves so much as well. Thank you again, Kind regards, Gill and Philip
